5 Tips to Keep Solar Water Heater System Running Smoothly

Keeping your solar water heater running smoothly and saving money is easy with a little bit of routine maintenance.

Water heating is an important part of most households, and a solar water heater can be a great choice for those who heat their water with a traditional tank heater or an electric water heater. However, a solar water heater requires additional maintenance (συντήρηση ηλιακού θερμοσίφωνα) to keep it running smoothly and prevent expensive repairs. Here are five tips to help you keep your solar water heater in top shape:

  1. Know When to Clean the Solar Collector Panel: Generally, it should be cleaned once a year to remove dirt and debris that can damage the collector and shorten its life. The best way to clean the panel is to purchase a commercial cleaner specifically designed for use with solar systems. Be sure to follow the instructions closely to avoid damaging the collector. You can also hire a qualified contractor to perform the cleaning for you if you prefer.
  2. Watch your temperature setting: Solar water heaters have a built-in temperature controller that allows you to set your preferred temperature. Keep an eye on this setting to ensure it’s set to “High” when the water temperature falls too low in the summer or if your home loses power in the winter. These settings need to be adjusted periodically as the water heater ages and become less efficient at converting sunlight into hot water.
  3. Check your system regularly for the leak: Look for any unusual noises coming from your system, such as sputtering or banging, and check the connections for any corrosion or leaking. If any are found, have the pipes replaced or the system professionally repaired as soon as possible. This is particularly important if you have a sealed solar water heater because a leak can lead to water damage and expensive repairs.
  4. Make sure your system has adequate drainage System: When water is pumped out of the system, it travels along a pipe to an area of the ground where you can drain it away safely. It’s important to make sure the pipe is installed properly and that the area where it is located is properly graded so that it will drain properly every time. The drain should also slope slightly away from the building to prevent standing water from collecting around it and causing a mosquito breeding ground.
  5. Install a Backup Battery System: All solar water heaters are required to have a battery backup system in place in case there is not enough sun to power the system during cloudy weather or other outages. A properly installed battery system will allow you to collect and store hot water even when the sun isn’t shining.

If your solar panels have a protective frame, make sure it is free of debris that might restrict airflow and reduce the efficiency of the system. If you see any signs of damage, it should be repaired immediately by professionals as αποφραξεισ αθηνα to prevent further damage.
